You can check out the thread I put together where I documented my search for an external drive. While it's 2 yrs old now, think it's still pretty accurate except for the pricing and the size of drives available. You can scroll down to post # 11 for the results of multiple timed tests of USB vs FW.

Hard drive reviews - 500 GB w/FW 800

I have replaced my internal drive now with a 7200 rpm. Should probably post some more testing to see what effect that has on transfer speeds.

I will also say that 2 years later, I am still happy with my choice of the OWC enclosure. It has performed admirably well.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
